Peter AbdulGet Down With Me ... LP
EMI/Dig This Way (Italy), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
The cover looks a bit cheesy – like some sort of Star Search graphic – but the album's a rock-solid gem from the second decade of Nigerian funk – recorded in Lagos with a great boogie vibe, and a groove that's as heavy on keyboards as it is on riffing guitar and percussion!

RCA, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99
A brilliant mix of jazz and world music! Abdul-Malik was the legendary bass player from the fifties who mixed straight jazz playing with traditional Middle Eastern rhythms – and although he most famously recorded albums with Monk as a regular bassist, his albums on his own are amazing ...

A beautiful record from Akofa Akoussah – a singer from Togo who's equally gifted in funky and sweeter soul styles!

Manu DibangoAmbassador ... LP
Mango, 1981. Very Good ... $7.99
A slightly confused effort from Manu Dibango's later years – sessions recorded in Paris, London, New York, and Kingston – which must have cost Island Records a bundle! There's an attempt here to change up Manu's groove a bit – one that brings a fair bit of reggae into the mix in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Manu DibangoElectric Africa ... LP
Celluloid/Tidal Waves, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 28.99
A really sweet combination of talents – as the legendary Afro Funk saxophonist Manu Dibango steps into the 80s – working with some of the electro jazz talents who were transforming the music at the time, in a mode that certainly warrants the title of the album! Bill Laswell produced, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Manu DibangoSoul Makossa ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible record – even if it was a worldwide hit! Before this one came out, Manu was a funky sax player grooving away in Cameroun, cutting tight but obscure soulful sides. In 1972, though, he exploded with the track "Soul Makossa" – a choppy hard-riffing number that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo sticker, cutout notch, some ring & edge wear, and a couple of wrinkles in the front paste-on.)

✨✧ Johnny Dyani & Okay TemizWitchdoctor's Son ... LP
Yonca/Matsuli (UK), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
One of the hippest albums we've ever heard from bassist Johnny Dyani – and that's saying a lot, given his tremendous records of the 70s! The album's different than the album that Johnny recorded with fellow Blue Notes members on the Steeplechase label – and instead, the group here is ...

Abderrahman El KhamissiRespectable Families (10 inch EP) (with bonus download) ... LP
Radio Martiko (Belgium), Late 60s. New Copy ... $23.99
A relatively short record, but one that more than makes up for that with a double-dose of grooviness – some wonderfully cool tunes put together for the soundtrack to the Egyptian film titled Respectable Families! Abderrahman El Khamissi plays keyboards and organ throughout – often with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A mix of timeless and modern Afro Latin grooves from Chicago's excellent Esso! Afrojam Funkbeat! Stylistically, the sky is the limit with this Esso!, with arrangements that roll from a broad palette of Latin jazz & soul instrumentation to more of a modern dancefloor vibe, and from instrumentals ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Etran De L'AirEtral De L'Air No 1 ... LP
Sahel Sounds, 2018. New Copy ... $18.99
A trio of guitars, augmented by bass, all swarming around each other in a way that might well make this group the Spacemen 3 of the Tuareg scene! There's not the obvious psychedelic influence here that group had back at the end of the 80s – but the mix of guitar fuzz is equally trippy – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

General Franco Lee EzuteOnye Kata Obia ... LP
Get/Bongo Joe (UK), 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
General Franco is alive and well – at least General Franco Lee Ezute, as the sound of his work on this record is so vibrant, it will keep his legacy alive for decades! The rhythms move fast, the guitar dances along at a similar speed, and Franco works with his Harmony Kings International ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Asterie/Strut (UK), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 23.99
Electrified zouk from the Guadeloupe scene – just the kind of unusual musical hybrid that's always made the Antilles so great! The work here has some echoes of the more familiar modes of zouk, but also has a leaner, more soul-based mode too – almost like a New York take on the genre, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
